Arnold Schwarzenegger Confirms Terminator Role
And says shooting will kick off in January...

Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines

While things have been relatively quiet on the Terminator news front since January, when Patrick Lussier and Laeta Kalogridis scored the job of writing the fifth instalment and Arnold Schwarzenegger used his trip to London as an excuse to keep pimping his involvement in the franchise, plenty has been happening behind the scenes. Word broke earlier this week that Paramount was in talks to make and distribute the new film and now here’s Arnie again chatting about his likely role.

"I'm very happy that the studios want me to be in Terminator 5 and to star AS the Terminator, which we start shooting in January,” he said, letting slip two very relevant pieces of intel about the film that, at the time of writing have yet to be confirmed officially by brother-sister producing team Megan and David Ellison.

For Arnie to return as the Terminator would most likely require some narrative quickstepping to explain his aged appearance or – much more likely – go the performance capture route.

Nothing has leaked yet about the direction this new outing will take, but if it really does start the cameras rolling next year, what do you think might happen with everyone’s favourite cyborg? And before anything can happen in terms of production, the film will need a director. Can an announcement about that be far off? Time will tell if this is all actual forward momentum and not just Arnie keeping the fan flames stoked…

Really?!
This one of those occasions where it might be better if if just said "I won't be back!" Despite a lot of people thinking that Salvation was cack, I thought it was the right way to go. Surely it would make no sense to brink Arnie's character into a continuation of that story for a big part, not unless that story is centred on him travelling through time again (please god no...). I would like to have seen the war against the machines as they it was in the first 2 movies, at night, amon More
